This case describes citizen participation initiatives in small provincial towns Ambrolauri and Ozurgeti, which were carried out in last week of September, 2005. In each town fundraising concerts with the participation of kindergarten and secondary school children were organized. In both cases necessary funds were raised, which was a result of active cooperation among local population, local government, local businessmen and NGO representatives.
In both Ozurgeti and Ambrolauri collected sum was used for the construction of playgrounds for town’s kindergartens. Furthermore, citizens saw on practical example that they have the capacity to solve their community problem themselves without outside help.
